I was scrolling through my Twitter feed (Arrgghhh! I hate how Twitter sucks me in like that!), and I came across a video of the British actor, Michael Caine. I don't remember who posted the video; I thought it was Brett Ledbetter of "What Drives Winning," b...

With last week's episode coming out on Christmas day, I took a little detour from my discussion of covenants, and I talked about quotes that deal with the concept of belief and how powerful our ability to believe in something can be.

Well, with today's episode coming out on New Year's Day, I thought it would be fitting to  talk about something that I focus on every year at this time—Goals & Goal-setting....

Last week, I continued talking about quotes from Arnold Schwarzenegger's new book, "Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life."

As I told you the last couple of weeks, it is quite good, and it is filled with so many great concepts that I have been reading parts of it to my team. So, I thought I would do the same with you. 

Today's episode focuses on the concept of recognizing that pain is something that ...

Last week, I thought I was going to be talking about quotes that I will be using with my varsity boys' basketball team over the course of our season.

While it won't be an actual series, over the next few episodes (maybe 4, but maybe more!), I will be talking about quotes that I will be using with my varsity boys' basketball team over the course of our season. As I type that, I realize that this could be a 4-month endeavor, rather than a 4-episode endeavor!
